Electronics Show (1995-1999)

The Japan Electronic Industry Exhibition was first held in 1962, and in 1964 the name of the exhibition was changed to the Japan Electronics Show. In total, the show was held 39 times until 1999. The Japan Electronics Show evolved with the electronics industry. By its final year, the show displayed products and technologies in fields from electronic components, devices and semiconductors to industrial and consumer electronics, and software. The 2000 integration with COM JAPAN to create CEATEC JAPAN represents an important step forward for this comprehensive trade show.

Milestones of the Japan Electronics Show

1958:  The first Television and Radio Parts Show, predecessor of the Japan Electronics Show, is held.

1961: The name of the show is changed to the Electronic Parts Show.

1962: The First Japan Electronic Industry Exhibition is held in the Tokyo International Trade Center. In an atmosphere of rapid technological advancement, this exhibition integrates several field-specific shows and becomes the first official trade exhibition representing Japan's electronics industry as a whole.

1963: The Second Japan Electronic Industry Exhibition is held in Osaka. After this, the show location is staggered every other year between Tokyo and Osaka.

1964: The exhibition name is changed to the Japan Electronics Show. With the aim of making this an international exhibition, preparations are made for the display of foreign-made products. From 1964, it is decided to hold the show in Tokyo during even-numbered years and Osaka in odd-numbered years.

1968: Foreign companies and government organizations, such as the U.S. Department of Commerce, the government of Canada and F.N.I.E. (France), participate in the exhibition. The number of foreign visitors also rises, making this year the first step toward developing into an international exhibition. In line with the growth of the exhibition, the organizers aim to establish a global atmosphere. The Japan Electronics Show Association, an independent organization, is also established to ensure well-balanced management of the show. Despite a drop in the number of visitors resulting from the oil crises of the 1970s and other factors, Japan's electronics industry continues to expand, and the exhibition establishes a reputation as one of Asia's leading international trade shows.

1984: A new microelectronics section, centered on office automation (OA) equipment, is added to exhibition.

1991: In order to stage events commemorating the 30th anniversary of the exhibition, the site is moved to Makuhari Messe. A three-section structure is established as follows:
1.
Consumer Electronics
2.
Industrial Electronics
(Electric measuring instrumentation, radio communications systems, telecommunications systems, and manufacturing/testing equipment)
3.
Electronic Devices, Components and Materials
(Electronic devices, general electronic components and materials)
1994: To respond to widespread changes in the industry, such as the continuing development of electronics technologies, the emergence of multimedia, the shift to software technologies and products, the globalization of society and lifestyles, and the advance of the information age, the structure of the exhibition is comprehensively renewed under two categories:
1)
Consumer Category
2)
Industrial Category
